Bachelor’s-Master’s combined degrees (BSMS)

  Bachelor’s-Master’s combined degrees (BS-MS program) have been implemented since the second semester of the academic year 2020-2021, allowing good- and very-good-ranked undergraduate students to shorten their learning duration (about 1 year) compared with the total duration of the Bachelor’s and Master’s degree. Students can register for this program and gain cumulative courses in Master program in their third years (up to 50% Master’s courses, equivalent to about 22 credits). These cumulative courses will be accredited for the relevant undergraduate courses (up to 15 credits).
